This vehicle-specific wiring harness makes connections between your new car stereo and your car's electrical system.
First, attach the color-coded wires on your Crutchfield-supplied harness to the wires from your new stereo. If you're not using a soldering iron, we recommend that you purchase some wire connectors to secure the connections. Check out our handy article on three ways to connect the wiring harness here.
Now, once this harness is connected to your new stereo, you'll be able to plug right into your car's factory radio connector. This harness saves installation time since you won't have to cut factory wires individually, and this also enables you to re-install the factory radio if needed. A detailed instruction sheet comes with the harness. Warranty: 60 days.
Please read this important note: This harness may not contain provisions for every wire needed to complete your installation, and it will not accommodate special navigation, video, or factory steering wheel control connections. You will need a special adapter if you want your factory steering wheel audio controls to work with your new stereo.
Note: You'll need to make a ground connection between your new receiver and your car's metal chassis.
Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.
Average Customer Review(s):
Fit my application perfectly.
Pros: Fits great
Great product, A must for easy install.
A helpful accessory that make connecting the new receiver to the old wiring of the car. Easy to follow color coded wires.
Works! What else can I say?
Cons: Didn't magically attach itself to stereo
Makes installation a breeze
Pros: Makes job so much easier. Just match the colors up.
GREAT MADE THE INSTALLATION EASY..TO CONNECT WERE THE ALL RADIO WAS ..EASY INSTRUCTIONS
Exact fit for a 95 Montero. Makes install simple for anyone.
Very easy to install. Match the colored wires according to the instructions, plug it into the head unit, and you're good to go.
Pros: Cost. Clear and easy-to-follow instructions.Ease of installation. Makes installing the head unit a snap.
Cons: None, really
Absolute necessity for aftermarket installation. It made the installation a snap. Literally changed the OEM stereo in less than 30 minutes using this harness.
Pros: descriptions printed on each wire for perfect match to new stereo leads; color coded wires matched new stereo exactly.
Absolutely ease to put together even simple color coordinated made it a sinch to connector and just replace the rats nest that was the previous owners mess.
Pros: Easy to use, color coodinated
Cons: Need to make insicions a bit longer for splicing had to lengthen the bare qire ends a bit. Instructions used more wires then i actually had.
Wired up with radio almost exactly color to color! Harness works perfect, Thank you! Worked perfect with my 2009 Mitsubishi Galant (Non-Rockford Audio System)
Pros: -Works great -worked with 2009 Mitsubishi Galant (Non Rockford System)
Solid item easy to use
Works perfect and very easy to use
Pros: Easy install
Used this in a 2007 Galant. Perfect fit. Just needed to add a grounding wire of which i just found a metal grounding point in the dash. The factory vehicle doesn't have a ground within the harness itself.
Pros: Perfect fit.
Great quality. Made installation very easy. The diagram is very easy to read. Awesome buy! I have never installed a aftermarket head unit in a car before and this harness made it a breeze.
Pros: Made the installation process very easy.
Outstanding product that makes installation of receiver easy! Very nice product.
Very easy to splice with the stereo's connection. Made installing a new car radio a simple task. Just match the functions of the wires and splice them together. Make sure you test connectivity (the holes may be small so use a paper-clip or something for that.
Pros: - Makes life easier
Cons: - none
Happy customer here!
Great product made installation easier
Crutchfield really knew what they were when they recomend this for your car. It made install super easy and quick. Soo easy even a monkey could do it !!
Pros: Quick , easy install and color match up
Excellent product. Easy connections
Pros: Easy install
Very easy to install.
Pros: Good instructions and easy to install.
Crutchfield has always hit it out of the park, with their harnesses, have not been disappointed yet.
Pros: great fit, straight forward installation.
Pros: Super easy, a rookie can use it!
This product was great! Easy to connect. Came with everything I needed minus tools. No complaints whatsoever.
Pros: Fits perfect!
includes wires for all of the factory radio functions in my Eclipse. It works. The wires are prestripped. What more could you ask?
Pros: Pre-stripped wires, includes all connections
I'm very bad at wiring so this was a godsend. It has a sufficient wiring length to make up for my multiple errors in stripping and cutting. Everything is nice and color coded with text (English) labels on them.
Pros: - Very useful - Simple install - Good wire length - Good wire gauge - Study build
Cons: - The wire colors are a bit faded compared to the stock wiring and the wiring on the head unit harness.
Worked well, instructions were very helpful.
What can I say...when it fits and works right off the go, I guess I can't complain.
Pros: Fit perfect
clear writing on wires along with detailed instructions. took 10min to wire to cd player harness
This wiring harness worked as advertised, but I had to make several splices to get it to function. That was mainly due to the onboard amplifier that I had to bypass. Not the fault of the harness, just the planning from the manufacturer. I would have expected a plug-in harness that would take care of the multiple splices.
easy to install, fits perfectly
I love it! easy to color match for the most part and high quality!
Pros: easy to wire!
Adapter made it easy to install Alpine into Mitsubishi Lancer
Perfect fit, easy hookup.
One word - perfect.
Pros: Perfect addition making installs a breeze.
As usual, Crutchfield wiring harnesses make installation quick and easy. Why buy anywhere else?
Pros: Easy to install using the harness
Have used the Crutchfield connectors in past installations, Never Disappointed. makes installation literally a snap..
Pros: Works every time.
Cons: Don't always depend on the color coding of the connector matching the wires of the new harness. Always Refer to your devices manual for a proper FIRST TIME connection.
Great swingeing harness. Just doesn't have the extra plug. I've got a E COM message up where the old display for my radio showed at.
Cons: The old radio display shows E COM now. My lights around my ac controls don't work anymore. Think it may have something to do with not having the other plug not sure yet.
Typical Crutchfield quality and service.
Pros: Solid product
Cons: They don't send tech to do it for you.:)
Pros: Good fit
I am sure this harness would have worked perfectly since the previous four I have purchased did. Unfortunately for me, the previous owner of my vehicle had yanked out the original factory harness. So, after meticulously soldering all of the connections to the radio harness I discovered my dilemma when removing the old factory stereo. Called tech support and they advised me to hard wire the unit and emailed me a wiring diagram for my vehicle. I was able to continue the installation and finish in a couple of hours and everything worked on the first go round.. Thanks Crutchfield Tech support!
Pros: Tech support
Cons: NONE....except for the previous owner of the vehicle
First of all I just want to say thank you to taylor. Crutchfield has superb custumer service. The wire harness is super easy to install. Crutchfield even cover the wires you don't need.
Good instructions. Easy to wire. Saved a lot of money on installation
Pros: Good fit
no more searching all over town for the wrong wiring kit easy to use and perfect fit (as long as someone hasn't already chopped up the wiring harness) love it
Pros: perfect fit
Piece of cake! Matched perfectly to my stereo and factory connection.
Pros: Easy to use.
Make sure you have butt connectors on hand but it only took my 5 Min's to make all my wires up.
Pros: Save your wiring harness please use this.
Used on a 2006 Lancer ES. No cutting of the factory harness. Had a new head unit wired up and installed in 30 minutes.
No cutting great
Well well! Very easy. I've installed a lot of car stereos at my age of 42...From the simplest of 70 Nova Hot/Ground/Speaker decks up to decks going into a 2009 Escalade. Cannot go wrong with this product! If you can read, you can do this. Everything marked & colored exactly matching the new receivers' wiring. Cut,Crimp,Plug & Play! My 10 year old son could have done this. I WILL be a returning customer! Thanks Crutchfield!!
Pros: Ease of color & wire matching, ready cut wire ends, instructions for removing & replacing specific stereo. Which wires are NOT used clearly marked. I could go on, but there's not much else to do!
Cons: No "Cons" whatsoever! A+
Matched perfectly. Very good printing on each wire too. Says were they go.
Pros: Very easy to follow.
Cons: I think they should come with straight splice connectors or plug-in's if you choose. (at no extra cost)
I love this company!
Pros: Crutchfield providing needed installation assessories at no additional cost is great customer service!
There was a lot of wire splicing to be done to make this work with the car's original socket
Pros: instructions were clear and was easy to follow
Cons: would have been nice if i could have hooked up the HUD for the dash
Color codes matched the ones of the radio exactly, plug matched the existing factory plug. What else can I say but excellent product....THANK YOU KRUTCHFIELD!
This harness made the wiring for the replacement stereo much easier to handle. I liked how everything was color coordinated and the diagram was easy to read and understand. The only thing I wish they had with this was the wire caps needed to cover the wire connections. If you see my review for the stereo installation kit, I'd rather have had the wire caps instead of the useless installation kit.
I guess it was easy to install as I had an installer do the job and it was done very rapidly and works great.
It works and does it's job. I can't give it a 5 star because it doesn't go above and beyond. But then again...how can something like this go above and beyond one's expectations. Anyway, simple put, it works, atleast for the 2000 Mitsubishi Galant that I have.
This harness made it truely easy to install the head unit I purchesed for my son. In fact he did the install in 15 minutes and hes a car electronics newby.
Great Quality and high gauge wire fits perfect with the stock Mitsubishi Montero sport receiver,.
The harness that came with my radio for free for my Mitsubishi Galant was perfect. The wires were pre-cut for splicing and make wiring to my new Pioneer head unit quick and easy.
Works as advertised. No surprise there.
Wired in perfectly to my girlfriend's 2002 Lancer. Had a question about the blue/white power antenna wire, but I got in touch with Crutchfield and was able to get my question answered quickly.
Crutchfield Wiring Harness: Crutchfield wiring harnesses prevent you from having to cut your vehicle's factory radio plug when replacing your factory radio with an aftermarket head unit. Simply solder or crimp the Crutchfield wiring harness to your aftermarket head unit's harness (solder & crimps not included), plug the aftermarket head unit's plug into the rear chassis of the aftermarket head unit, and plug the Crutchfield wiring harness into your vehicle's factory radio plug.
Note: Installation tools, hardware, & accessories are not included & sold separately. Please see the Accessories tab for recommendations & availability.
Wiring Notes: If the Crutchfield wiring harness is not equipped with a ground wire, you will need to ground the aftermarket head unit's ground wire to the metal chassis of your vehicle. Some vehicle's may require you to bypass the vehicle's factory amplifier (in another location from factory radio) or hardwire certain connections. If your vehicle is equipped with factory steering wheel controls, an additional adapter is required & sold separately.
